We booked this really nice place for a day. It cost about NZ$70 for the night which was all in all a bargain. Check in was fuss free and pleasant and so was check out. Ross helped carry our luggage to the second floor. Earlier in the afternoon it was slightly noisy but it got quieter later at night. The room had a bar fridge, a radiator, a large bathroom, heated blankets. The only thing was the TV in the living room which didn't have Sky TV so we couldnt watch the rugby match, so we went to the city centre to join others. Overall well-done! I'd stay there again.
